Position: Professor

Areas of Expertise: Sensors characterization, Human kinematics measurements, Brain computer Interface (BCI)


He received the Dr. Eng. degree in Electronic Engineering from the University “Tor Vergata”, Rome, Italy, in 1991, and the Ph.D. degree in Microelectronic and Telecommunication Engineering, in 1996, from the same University.
In 1991, he did his thesis in theNanoelectronics Research Centre, Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, University of Glasgow, Scotland, and in the Cavendish Laboratory, Department of Physics, University of Cambridge, England. From 1991 to 1993, he worked with a grant in C.R.N. (Italian Center for Research Counsel). During the summer of 1994, he was a Visiting Scientist at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Central Microstructure Facility Laboratory, Oxford, England. His initial research activities covered the area of nanodevices, surface acoustic wave devices, noise in electronic devices.

He is currently a Researcher at the University “Tor Vergata”, Rome, Italy.

He teaches courses about Electronics at the Faculty of Engineering (Departments of Informatics, Telecommunications, Mathematics, Automations, Master on Sound Engineer) and the Faculty of Medicine (Departments of Medicine and Surgery, Orthopedics and Traumatology, Neurophisiopatology).

His current research interests are related to the fields of biosensors, sensor’s characterization, human kinematics’ measurements and brain computer interface.

He has published tens of papers on international journals and a book about electronics “Basi di Elettronica, II edizione”.

He is currently:
member of Italian Space BioMedical Society;
Principal investigator W.P. DCMC Project (from Space Italian Agency);
Promoter and coordinator of the HITEG group (Health Involved Technical Engineering Group),University “Tor Vergata”,Rome, Italy
